What you see above, dedicated readers, is not a Punch Out screenshot. I know it looks like one, which is what makes it really amazing. It's actually painted by 8-Bit Artist, a guy whose work turns me into a slack jawed drooling yokel. (Disclaimer: Mississippi residents, try not to be offended. You can't help yourselves.) He's done some golden classics, including Contra, Ninja Gaiden, Castlevania and Zelda. If you're lucky, maybe he'll do a commission painting for you of that unforgettable moment when you took Ganon out for the first time. The rest of his gallery is avaliable at Deviant Art. If you start to drool and fantasize about your cousins, don't blame me. Wanna learn more about how this guy creates this total madness? Check our Dtoid interview.
